Finding your voice is one of the greatest challenges of writing poetry. In this interactive workshop, published poet Sharena Lee Satti will ease you gently into the world of creative writing, as you explore poetry in a friendly group.
No experience required, just an open mind and a willingness to try something new. Whether you are an established poet or just starting out, all are welcome.
Let’s find your poetic voice together.
